This week’s Talk Radio Topic  is “Recognizing Trauma Symptoms in Children” on Planetary Streams Talk Radio.


Salem, UT – December 8, 2010 – Planetary Streams Talk Radio Network today announced that Diana Hoffman, Clinical Hypnotherapist,  Trauma Recovery Specialist, and host of  “Healing Talk” radio show, will be discussing “Recognizing Trauma Symptoms in Children.”   Healing Talk  broadcasts locally every Wednesday on Utah’s KSTAR 1400 AM and globally throughout the following week, starting on Saturday at 11 a.m.  Mountain Time on Planetary Streams Talk Radio Network, and Web Campus World Wide Talk Radio.

According to Diana Hoffman, LPC, Trauma Recovery Specialist, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Mind/Body Healing Coach, and owner of Salem Counseling Center, Children are frequently impacted by trauma. The Ace Studies indicate that over 50 percent of today’s adults have unresolved trauma from their childhood. And today’s children have an even higher rate of trauma than the previous generation. Current estimates suggest that 33 percent for girls and 20 percent of boys experience sexual abuse trauma. Fifty percent of children experience divorce.   In addition, trauma symptoms and trauma freeze states are often seen in children who have experienced medical procedures and surgeries, accidents, death of a family member or pet, disasters, witnessing violence, physical or emotional abuse, bullying or gang terrorization, and other stressors.

Unresolved trauma directly impacts the brain stem, the lower brain structures, and the limbic system of the brain. These effects do not just go away with time. If not resolved, they can have a serious long-term impact. This is demonstrated by the ACE studies, which show that unresolved childhood trauma impacts adult health problems, relationship problems and addictions 50 years after the trauma occurred.

Children experiencing trauma freeze states may seem lethargic. They are likely to be unable to concentrate or focus, and are frequently misdiagnosed as having attention deficit disorder. They are likely to have anger outbursts that seem unrelated to the present, or are too intense to be explained by current events. Children with trauma may be easily overstressed, and when stressed their blood pressure can drop suddenly, producing paleness, sweating, or even fainting. Trauma freeze states are closely tied to shock, can be medically dangerous, and can occur suddenly without physical injury.  Understanding trauma freeze states and trauma symptoms is essential for teachers, parents, coaches, health care providers, and anyone who works with children.

Join us on December 8 as we discuss the signs that indicate trauma states in children, and learn more about how to resolve them. This program will broadcast live on KSTAR 1400 AM in Utah and Salt Lake Valley. It will stream daily on internet radio starting Saturday, December 11 on Web Campus World Wide Radio, Planetary Streams Talk Radio, and Shoutcast.
